Abstract : The availability of up-to-date and reliable data on the substance and funding of Research and Development efforts within the Manpower Personnel and Training (MPT) community, and the valid linkage of such data through a systems approach, are important aids to researchers and managers in the Department of Defense. The Manpower and Training Research Information System (MATRIS) is a computerized, information-sharing and Decision Support System (DSS) designed to provide such aids to those involved with the conduct and/or fiscal management of Department-of-Defense-sponsored, people-related Research and Development pursuits. Although already in operation, the evolution of MATRIS continues within the framework of the prototype development model. The prototype development process of MATRIS, the structure and content of its data base, and the services and products which the system makes possible, are described. (Author)
